Automation solutions in practice

The SPS in Nuremberg is the highlight of the automation industry From November 14 to 16, 2023, the complete range for smart and digital automation can be discovered. SCHUNK is going to present practical innovations and sophisticated automation solutions. To name a few: for mechatronic gripping, flexible handling and e-mobility.
SCHUNK - SLD/EGK The SLD series of linear direct axes allows shorter cycle times and higher productivity in high-speed assembly and handling processes. Due to the SoftGrip mode, the EGK gripper for small components safely handles filigree printed circuit boards.

For SCHUNK, practical, user-friendly automation solutions and efficient approaches for production of tomorrow are generally in focus. This self-image underlines the company also at the SPS and presents itself as a strong partner and companion for the challenges of modern manufacturing. SCHUNK helps users to make production processes more flexible, efficient and sustainable with smart components, digital services and comprehensive application knowledge,

SCHUNK - EGU Robust and versatile: The electric universal gripper EGU, shown here in a double gripper version, is particularly suitable for flexibly loading and unloading machine tools.

Setting new benchmarks for mechatronic gripping

The same applies for the smart gripper series EGU and EGK that will be showcased at the show. They are setting benchmarks in terms of flexibility, interface diversity and process reliability. As the grippers offer different gripping modes for different handling tasks. A new common electronics and software platform makes this intelligent feature come true. Because existing gripping methods are continuously optimized and supplemented, customers will continue to benefit from the future-proof enhancements via software updates.

The EGK gripper for small components is excellently suitable for handling filigree and fragile workpieces, and therefore is ideally suited for challenging applications in the lab industry or electronics manufacturing. The universal EGU gripper is in turn a reliable all-rounder for all handling tasks. It plays to its full strength, especially in flexible loading and unloading of machine tools.

SCHUNK – hairpin gripper Customized industry solutions for E-mobility are in focus at the SCHUNK booth: for example for the production of hairpin stators.

Pushing E-mobility forward

The linear direct axis of the SLD series are also dynamic all-rounders. This new generation with electrical linear direct drive is highly durable, ensures short cycle times and additional productivity during high-speed assembly and handling in electronics manufacturing, Life Science and E-mobility. There is a special focus on this industry topic: SCHUNK supports here with a forward-looking portfolio. For example, a combination of a high-speed linear module and a highly flexible double gripper has succeeded in reducing the automated setting of hairpin stators to one second and with a repeat accuracy of 0.01 mm!

Discover these and other practical solutions at the SCHUNK booth 11 in hall 3A.
